If you are on tiktok (like we are) you probably have come across this recipe for “cloud bread“. Super fluffy, fun to make and even more fun to cut into, this cloud bread can be made into any color or flavor. Consisting of 3 simple ingredients, here is how you make the tiktok cloud bread.

Earlier this month, “Cloud Bread” went viral on Tiktok.

Beautiful, fluffy and fun cloud breads were popping up everywhere. With only 2-3 ingredients (depending on if you added sugar or not), cloud bread was for sure one of the simplest ways to bake up this fun treat. Unfortunately so many of the recipes were out of America so the food ingredient measurements were different, so here at Salty Side Dish, we worked through a few to find out how to translate it for our US readers. 

We tested two versions and I am publishing the larger more striking of the two. Once you understand the recipe, you can easily alter for bigger loafs, smaller individual servings and interchangeable colors and flavors. Lets get baking!

Viral Cloud Bread Recipe from TikTok

  • 9 tablespoons of liquid egg whites
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons of Corn Starch
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons of white sugar
  • OPTIONAL: a drop of vanilla, a drop or two of food coloring

How to Make a Cloud Bread Loaf

THE PERFECT TIKTOK CLOUD BREAD 

Preheat oven to 300 and place a piece of parchment paper flat on a sheet pan. Spray parchment paper with non stick cooking spray.

The key to making cloud bread is getting your egg whites into stiff peaks to bake. 

First add 9 tablespoons of liquid egg whites into a bowl. Whisk (or mix on high in a mixer) until the egg whites start to bubble up in mini bubbles. 

Add corn starch and white sugar. Combine. 

Now mix until egg whites are stiff peaks.

You can do this by hand or a stand mixer, but I really recommend a stand mixer. Making egg whites into stiff peaks takes some time and a regular mixer is easier. 

My stand mixer (on high) takes about 10-12 minutes of mixing until ready. 

Optionally, add a drop or two of flavor like vanilla and a drop or two of coloring if you would like a colored cloud bread.

Once egg whites are fluffy and stiff (stand on own), add to a sheet pan covered in parchment paper into a round loaf shape.

Place cloud bread in oven on 300 for 25-26 minutes.

The top will be slightly browned (no matter what color you make it) and will be firm to the touch. 

Peel slowly from the parchment paper. 

As the bread sits, it will fall down and be less puffy, so if you want it puffy, let it cool a few minutes and then dive in.

What does Cloud Bread TASTE like? 

I wasn’t 100% sure what it was going to taste like. There are a lot of versions online that people call cloud bread – some that include cream cheese, some that are in replacement for pizza dough or as tortillas. I think because I heard the word BREAD that I mistakenly thought it was going to taste like bread. While the consistency is kinda like a spongy angel food cake is awful fun to play with, it tastes like EGG.

Like lightly sweetened egg. 

Some readers have suggested that it tastes good with seasonings and cocoa powder.

Keto Cloud Bread

This recipe as written is NOT considered keto as it has white refined sugar. But you can sweeten with other keto friendly sugars like monkfruit or leave it out entirely.

Just note that this really does taste like eggs, so its best to put in a flavor if you are going to remove the sugar.

    1. Explain to me what you did and ill see where you went wrong in the process and do my best to help make the cloud bread! We made it three times yesterday with no issues.

  1. Taylor French says:

    I made this! Added a little cocoa powder and it was delicious!!!

    1. awesome! So glad you tried the cloud bread and loved it – cocoa powder is a fun idea for this recipe, ill have to try that!

    1. Hi Layla, Forming peaks isnt hard but most people quit too soon. It does take a long time to get your egg whites into stiff peaks. The best way to do it is to put in a stand mixer and turn on high for about 10 minutes, monitoring it. You can do it by hand but it will take a lot longer, probably 15 minutes (in my experience).

    2. I tried too and for a long time it almost formed stiff peaks but turned soupy 🙁

    3. Rachel Williams says:

      Most definitely took almost 20 min between three people. Me, my daughter and the hubby. It was fun though! It’s baking now so we’ll update! 🥰😁

    4. I think people underestimate how long it can be to whip eggs, lol! I hope your cloud bread turned out awesome!

  2. Im trying to make it and it almost formed stiff peaks (not quite) and then just turned soupy 🙁

    1. So glad I’m not the only one. This is the 3rd time I’ve tried and it keeps turning into soup

    2. It probably has to do with the egg whites not being whipped enough. If you are doing it by hand, it takes a LONG time. Your best bet is to put it in a mixer on high and let it go till its thick. Its a process that not everyone is used to, so its easy to quit too early, which will not give the eggs the density they need.

  3. kayla jackson says:

    what if i over mix it is that possible

    1. Yes, this is a great question. You can overbeat mix the eggs. They are done when they are light and fluffy, like a cloud. If you continue past that, the eggs rebreak down and collapse.

  4. I had problems getting it to form peaks as well when using the break free liquid egg whites (from a carton). It turns out that they don’t work as well for whipping because they’re pasteurized, which means they’re partially heated and change in texture:
    I had much better luck using egg whites from whole eggs! 🙂

  5. Bob Anderson says:

    So you made an Angel Food Cake with Corn starch instead of flour.
    Yay.
    People who give a new name to something that already exists in order to get attention are sick and need help.
    ACTUALLY invent something new in this world, or shut up.

    1. hi Bob, First, I am not sure who peed in your cheerios to get angry over the name of a recipe.

      Second, we didn’t invent or name this recipe. Had you read the article, you would see this was a viral recipe we tested. Third, this is absolutely NOTHING like angel food cake. Angel food cake is flour, sugar, vanilla, salt and egg whites. Just adding egg whites to something doesn’t make it similar. That’s like calling meringue an angel food cake. And lastly, if you didn’t want to see if this recipe worked, why did you actually google it and show up. So unless you want to bring value or kindness to the world, maybe its you who should, as you eloquently put “shut up.”

      Trisha

    2. Exactly, Bob Anderson. Trisha’s right. YOU’RE just trying to be cool and YOU’RE just trying to get attention. You shut up 🤐. Trisha is trying to help people make cloud bread at home and then you show up, being mean.

  6. I don’t have corn starch. Can cornflour replace it? If not, what can I use?

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      Corn starch is a really specific ingredients and without testing in this particular recipe, I cannot tell you for sure that any replacement would work. There are some random ingredients that occasionally can be substituted like arrow root or potato starch, but those are even less common than corn starch. You can grab a container at the dollar store next time to test out – also its fantastic mixed w/ flour for fried chicken!

    2. Okay, thank you.🙏
